The Irregulars Salute: Mayor Michael Bloomberg!





The Irregulars would like to extend an honorary membership to New York's very own mayor (and terrorist groundhog victim), Michael Bloomberg!

For years, New Yorkers have been detecting an unusual odor in the air. From time to time, the sweet smell of maple syrup has wafted through our neighborhoods, frightening many and causing pancake sales to skyrocket.

What's the source of the mysterious scent? There have been countless theories involving everything from government conspiracies to bug spray. (Though only the Irregulars know the REAL story.) But now Mayor Bloomberg has finally offered a credible answer. We applaud his detective work (and his awesome map, shown below), despite the fact that he got it all wrong. (But when in doubt, it never hurts to blame New Jersey!)

Watch the Mayor explain it all here. Then check out The Columbia Conspiracy for the truth!

It's okay IDHSCB, I'm from NJ too. ^^' But I actually agree with this report! The food manufacters n NJ add alot of weird stuff in our food... Peanutbutter in the Pah-tai was the cause of the salmonella for me XD Who knew people use PEANUTBUTTER in Tai food?? [rofl] But atleast the "maple syrup" mystery was solved! [btw, where in NY smells like maple syrup?]

I love maple syrup. It's so much better than "pancake syrup." But I wouldn't want to smell it 24/7.

Staten Island Chuck is a hero for all New Yorkers. He bit our worst mayor since Jimmy Walker.
